Power Play: Umbrella

The Umbrella is a solid power play set-up that can be very difficult to defend against if run well

The Umbrella is a very common power play set-up at higher levels of play. The reason for this is that it is extremely effective when run well. Remember to structure your set-up using players that fit each position’s “job description,” including what way they shoot.

The Umbrella works very well when two cross-ice passes occur before the shot (see video for examples). This helps to hang the goalie out to dry, and can really mess up the opposition’s penalty kill.

    Hi Jeremy

    Excellent drills and site. I am having a problem opening the drills. I have saved them into my drill draw but they won’t open. Any ideas?

      Did you unzip the file before importing it? It can’t be a zip file… Has to be the .dde to work. Let me know…
